Soundtrack for 'Muppets Most Wanted' coming out March 18, see complete list of songs

The latest Muppets soundtrack will be released three days before the the new movie "Muppets Most Wanted."

The songs in the movie follow the Muppets' musical reputation, according to Brett McKenzie, who wrote the songs and won an Oscar for the original song "Man or Muppet" from the 2011 "The Muppets."

"'I'm Number One' is about the bad frog Constantine being the number one criminal and his sidekick Dominic, played by Ricky Gervais, being number two," McKenzie said in a news release. "It's a power struggle, a classic rivalry song in a style that could be performed in a cabaret venue. A lot of the old Muppets songs are like that—show pieces."

The soundtrack features songs with Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett and Celine Dion.
